Kuja, a 23 year old gorilla, died at the National Zoo during heart surgery. The report says the gorilla became lethargic and had a loss of appetite about a month ago. I'm certain it had nothing to do with this.

He sucked on the stem of his glasses: "The typical person around here may not understand."

At the zoo hospital, a team of four veterinarians, three technicians, an animal keeper and a veterinary dentist were wheeling a 350-pound gorilla into surgery as Frist arrived.
